Domain Name Registration or Transfer

Domain names are essential to having an online presence. They are an easy way for people to know where to find your website and to send you emails. A domain name is a human-readable “address” on the Internet. Domain names usually have extensions, like .com, .net, or .org, e.g. example.com. Fun Fact: The most expensive internet domain name was sold for $13 million. Without a domain name, it would be necessary for everyone to know the exact IP address of the machine where your website is currently hosted (need hosting?). That might be fine if there was just one, but eventually everyone would have to start making a list somewhere, with the names of websites and their corresponding IP addresses they want to remember just so they could keep track of them all.
Registering a domain name is easy. First, you will need to check if your domain is available, which can be done using the domain name checker. Once you have confirmed that your domain is available, you can register it by simply following the prompts.
Each country around has its own country code. In the United Kingdom the country code is .uk, while the New Zealand code is .nz. The ccTLD for Australia is .au and makes up the .com.au, .net.au, .org.au, .asn.au and id.au domain names.These ccTLDs allow simple identification of the domain name registry in a particular region. For example, an email or webpage request for an Australian domain is sent to the Australian registry (AusRegistry) database. This contains the DNS server records of the web hosting company, and will then forward the request there. The request is then resolved by the DNS servers, which then directs traffic to the correct hosting server location.
